Jaquet Droz Reserve de Marche Ceramique

Oct 01, 2008
The Jaquet Droz Hommage Geneve 1784 Collection has been joined by a new exceptional timekeeping creation - Reserve de Marche Ceramique. The absolute black watch with mere red accents has united the refined beauty of the 'Grande Seconde' and the highly reliable self-winding double-barrel mechanical movement.

The mechanism, Jaquet Droz 4063D, beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour, incorporates a 22K white gold oscillating weight with black PVD finish and Cotes-de-Geneve-decorated bridges.

The 44 mm case of the Jaquet Droz watch is crafted in high-tech black ceramic, the material greatly appreciated by watchmakers not only for its supreme aesthetics but also for its superb resistance and hardness, so a ceramic case perfectly retains its brightness and color. The case construction boasts 30-meter water-resistance.

The Reserve de Marche Ceramique reveals a black opaline dial with originally overlapping seconds and hour and minute subdials.

The distinctively red 68-hour power-reserve scale is found at 9 o'clock. The red color of the scale is echoed by the red seconds hand. The graphic design of the power-reserve scale has been inspired by minimalistically elegant speedometers of powerful motor cars, strengthening the overall sporty appeal of the timepiece.

To guarantee the technical excellence, the watch has been tested at extreme temperatures. The timepiece goes on an integrated black natural rubber strap fitted with steel folding-clasp buckle with black PVD finish, emphasizing its exclusive nature.

The Jaquet Droz Reserve de Marche Ceramique will be available in a limited edition of 88 pieces, each one featuring its individual number engraved on the case back. The retail price of the timepiece will be around 23, 000 Swiss Francs.
